Dayrits’ Through the Years…
It was such a week and a “staycation” is the next best thing that we thought of.
What made it more exciting is the place where we are staying surprised me to find out that “Dayrits” is their tenant which cater to all of their guests’ cravings.
Gone are the moments when each time I’ll pass by Magallanes, I would see their restaurant below the fly-over and most of the time I would wish to jump-off the bus and head to Dayrits and devour on their famous roast beef steak.
Some years ago, when I used to work in Makati, Dayrits have been one of those places that has become one of our favorite spot. We hang out there for a hefty lunch or dinner, and young as I was (I am barely 30 years old then), the bosses will treat us there and established it as a habit.
I’ve missed their line-up a lot. There’s tocino with atchara, roast beef and baked potato and even spam steak with pinapple slices on it to sweeten it lightly. I will not forget their gravy, it was a stand-out.
Coming across the current menu, I instantly noticed that there have been some changes over the years.
If some could correct me (as the staff is no longer aware of it, like the skiletti of Shakeys, no one remembers it anymore), the rice that they pair with the roast beef is java rice.
At present, they only serve steamed rice and pineapple rice. Still, we ordered for their famous roast beef and opted for a steamed rice. And for me to gorge on the gravy, I ordered for another beef dish and suggested to Jen that she order the famous roast beef.
In my humblest opinion, I knew Jen didn’t like it that much, because she mentioned another place where the gravy tastes best. And I understand where she’s coming from.
I was a bit disappointed too, however, it is very slight and I am more excited to have tried it after so many years.
Besides, there are a lot of restaurants nowadays to choose from. And speaking of tenderness, none so far can beat the one I tried from Duck and Buvette which soon I’ll let Jen try.
I must not forget mentioning. Their baked potato topped with bacon bits is still a show-stopper.
When we were trying to figure out where to have our dinner that night, since we are a stone throw away from Aguirre St. of BF Paranaque. We all know that this particular street is a Foodie hub, we opted to dine at Dayrits so we would have more time to relax after and plunge in the pool before calling the weekend off…
I will no longer crave every time I pass by Dayrits, my cravings granted unplanned. =)
Glad to know there are 2 branches:
Makati – Paseo de Magallanes, Magallanes Village,
Sucat, Paranaque – 35 President Avenue,BF Homes, Sucat/
